In her fifteen years I have never managed to get Charlotte to eat jam. She loves fruit and has a very sweet tooth but decided at birth that jam was disgusting. I've always found that surprising.

At the moment we have much too much rhubarb in the garden and the kids are on holiday so I thought coaxing Lots to make rhubarb and vanilla jam might help. She agreed happily to make the jam and when it came time to test if it was setting on a frozen plate, I caught her licking a finger. 'This is actually quite nice!' she stated! Amazing.

Now I too have tasted her jam, I have to say I'm a bit miffed. I've been making jam with our rhubarb for the last six or seven years. Her first batch tastes better than mine and has a much better consistency!
